This rare biplane was
built in 1929 and licensed in 1930. The New Standard company
built this aircraft to be able to transport passengers for
rides during the days of the barnstormers. This may be the
last of it's type doing was it was built and designed for.
Many of these aircraft were used as pesticide sprayers and
were also used during prohibition to transport alcohol across
the border with Canada. While built to be sturday and easy to
repair, unimproved runways took their toll on a majority of
the D-25s. This one has been rebuilt a number of times. It's
current owner calls it "Stanley".
